Since a few days several reports suggested that actors Janhvi Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra have been roped in for the second installment of Karan Johar’s 2008 hit film ‘Dostana’. However Karan Johar took to his official Twitter handle to rubbish all the speculations revolving around the sequel.
Dostana was produced by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions
There were reports that filmmaker and producer Karan Johar’s ‘Dostana 2’, is already in the pipeline. Buzz has it that KJo has given his nod to Dostana sequel and the film is expected to go on floors by early next year.
However, Karan Johar made it clear that the news is completely false, he wrote, “Hello!!! All news circulating about DOSTANA 2 is untrue!!! Lots of speculation which is entirely baseless!!!
Tarun Mansukhani had directed the first installment in 2008 which featured Priyanka Chopra, John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead roles. The bold comedy-drama was set in Miami and told the story of two men pretending to be gay in order to get an apartment with a woman. They fall in love with her but she ended up being involved with someone else.
Karan Johar recently announced his next mega project titled ‘Takht’ while Jahnvi Kapoor recently made her Big Bollywood debut with Shashank Khaitan’s film 'Dhadak’ opposite Ishaan Khatter. She will be seen next in a film that stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles.
On the other hand, Sidharth was last seen in 2017 films A Gentleman opposite Jacqueline Fernandez and Ittefaq with Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna. Recently Sidharth has begun shooting for his upcoming romantic comedy film ‘Jabariya Jodi’ with Parineeti Chopra in Lucknow. The release date of the film hasn’t been announced yet.
